What is acupuncture?

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic treatment during which an acupuncturist will insert tiny needles into your body. However, the areas the needles go into are not in any way random. According to traditional Chinese medicine humans have meridians in which our energy or life force flows. When acupuncturists insert needles into specific points along these meridians they are able to re-balance the flow and thus improve the person’s health and well-being. What to expect from an acupuncture session? Although origins of acupuncture include much of traditional Chinese medicine, modern acupuncturists often blend it with Western approach to medicine. Depending on the personal beliefs of the acupuncturist, a session may vary a bit. However, the overall structure of acupuncture remains the same–tiny needles will be inserted at various depths into your body. After 10 to 20 minutes the acupuncturist will remove the needles, during which you shouldn't experience pain or discomfort.  How do you prepare for an acupuncture treatment? Physically, there are no preparations required before an acupuncture session. If, however, you are new to the idea of holistic medicine, you may want to dig into the topic and do some research, to better understand the treatment. As with most holistic treatments, it’s important to come to the session with an open mind. This way you can allow your body to respond to acupuncture in the way it needs to.  How do I make an appointment for an acupuncture treatment?
